‘On the House’ promotion still exists
It may be one of the lesser known and liked games in the series, but Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault was an okay time. Even if the game did nothing to innovate on the plethora of World War II shooters we had seen back in the day, it provided a look at the Pacific Theater that rarely gets discussed in media. It also wasn’t the trash fire that is Medal of Honor: Rising Sun, so it gets points for being playable.
If you fancy brushing up on your history of historical gaming before the launch of Call of Duty: WW2, then EA has got a treat for you. Starting today, you can nab Pacific Assault for free on Origin through EA’s “On the House” promotion. I’m mostly surprised to hear that still exists, but free is free.
Dealing with Origin may not be great, but the service has improved a lot over the years. I don’t know that EA will ever make for a proper competitor to Valve’s Steam service, but at least they’re trying. Its better to be weak than to let one company form a monopoly.
